Things to do
Holidays you’ll always remember
You never need to leave Gara Rock but there’s so much to do nearby that we know you’ll be tempted:
Stroll down the path to our sandy beach: it’s only minutes from your front door.
Catch the ferry across the estuary to Salcombe and wander through its narrow streets: the food, art and shopping are excellent, and there’s a real buzz in summer.
Follow your nose inland and find tiny villages where cottages tumble down hillsides to sparkling rivers, and the pubs serve local beers, ciders, and great food.
Head over to Dartmouth for its castle and Tudor streets, comedy and music festivals, arts scene and regatta.
Explore the coast path, find hidden beaches, paddle up creeks in a kayak, learn to sail or surf, dive the wrecks, take a windswept winter walk.
